ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Commissioners say a county park could have a new multi-purpose facility as soon as next summer.

The planned facility at Robert Cross Park would provide a space for community meetings, weddings and other events. The county will use more than a half million dollars in sales tax money to pay for the project.

Commissioners said the plans are right on schedule. They also said the facility will complement the services now available to park visitors.

"There's a schematic that's already been developed for it. Of course you need architects involved to come up with a...with what it will actually look like, and what it'll be once it's done. Just to kind of put the finer points to it," said Commissioner John Hayes, Dougherty County Commission.

Hayes says county leaders are reviewing expected maintenance costs and potential user fees for the site.

He says the groundbreaking should be sometime in October, and the project should be done by June 2014.
